"We know how important our locals are to helping us keep a successful downtown," said Michele Sparks, one of the committee members. "But it isn't just about the sales, we also want them to know how much we appreciate them."
Committee member Dawn Freeman added, " We are really excited about this new program and look forward to meeting more locals downtown."
The committee thanked Sherry Schmidt from Four Seaons for setting the idea in motion and helping to create the logo.
The participating shops plan to make "Love Our Locals" a year-round promotion.
